The Danish-Canadian industrial designer Niels Bendtsen (1943) gleaned his education through familial nurture and his own curious nature. A cast metal candlestick holder, the first product he created, sparked a lifetime of design and manufacturing. In 1973 Bendtsen returned to his birthplace, Denmark, and plunged headfirst into design. He freelanced for the likes of Eilersen, IKEA, and Kebe, for whom he created the Ribbon Chair that holds a place in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection. More recently, Bendtsen has designed for Linteloo, Montis, FLOS, and his own brand Bensen.
